The Prince is back and he is visiting his brother’s kingdom following his adventure in Azad, the Prince finds the royal palace under siege from a mighty army bent on its destruction. When the decision is made to use the ancient power of the Sand in a desperate gamble to save the kingdom from total annihilation, he will embark on an epic adventure in which he will learn to bear the mantle of true leadership, and discover that great power often comes with great responsibility.
The Prince has the ability to rewind time from the very beginning of the game and throughout the game he learns new powers. The biggest new feature is the addition of elemental powers,which bring a new dimension to the core gameplay, because of the way these powers interact with each other and the Prince's other abilities. There are four core powers in the game. For example, the Prince can "solidify" water fountains and turn them into climbable columns.Besides these core powers, there are also minor powers, that can be purchased to enhance the Prince's abilities from a djinn named Razia.These minor powers include a shield and the power to summon small tornadoes.The combat in the game is similar to combat mechanics found in The Sands of Time. The Prince will be able to fight multiple enemies in one battle, up to 50 at once.An important part of the combat is "crowd control" and evading enemies, as well as combos.There is no blocking and there are no quick time events in the game.

Mmm...

Nah-ah. Not in my tastes, bro. Especially with the travesty coming out in theaters now.

I'll pick up the game on PS3 when it hits $30 or less as I did with the first Prince Of Persia on PS3 (360 too, can't remember if there was a PC version though).

The best of the 3D Prince Of Persia games is easily still the first one, The Sands Of Time, on PS2/XBOX/NGC.

I loved this game, took me a few hours to run through it the second time. Not as good as the Sands of Time trilogy (wherein SoT and Warrior Within kick ass), but still a whole lot better than that cell shaded kiddy game we got last year.

This one. Cell-shaded. Light and darkness. Light seeds. Giant trees. That one. I actually think that one will be the one that'll be forgotten.

Cell shading does not make a game kiddy. Are you kidding me? (pun intended, I know that was lame) That's what Zastard was talking about, being a fan of SFIV, which is cell shaded and classed as one of the most hardcore games this gen, especially for getting all the trophies/achievements.

I can see not liking it, but c'mon; being cell shaded does NOT make a game kiddy.

Though I will give you that the first three on PS2/XBOX/NGC were the best.

I didn't mean cell shaded games were kiddy (I was just stating that it was cell shaded so people knew which one I was talking about), I absolutely love that graphical style (Borderlands/Eternal Sonata/SFIV ftw).

I just didn't find it as mature as the previous trilogy.

It's fun. A lot better than I thought it would be. A bit better than last year's PoP (Though, I actually enjoyed that one too).

This is how they should make these kinds of games: using the movie as advertisement, but creating the game completely separate with a different storyline.

More like the Sand of Repeating Time.


Seriously, it's exactly the same as the one on the old Xbox.

Apart from the fact that you're going after an Ifrit instead of a silly old Vizier... there are no other time powers, only rewind... oh yes and of course, how silly of me to forget. The ability to freeze water, create trails of fire, whirlwinds, cover yourself in a stone armor, throw ice spikes all across the room...

But apart from that it's completely the same.

Did I forget to mention the ability to 'fly'?

Something tells me it's going to be a fairly easy platformer.
